Tilda with Gate

I have had a lot going on a work so have not been as good about posting on my blog as I should have.  Tonight I put together a card with a Tilda that I had colored a while ago.  I have been taking a copics class online with Suzanne Dean.  I have learned so much.  I have started with the beginner class.  I see so many flaws in the coloring of the above Tilda based on what I have learned.  However, I think she is cute and love the fence.  I put ritz glitter on the filigree punched paper.  Ritz glitter is the best!  I won some on a blog and just love it.

I have been on an iris folding kick lately.  Here is an iris folded bunny.  I love this technique, however, there will be other techniques this weekend posted on my blog.  Hope you enjoy!

Ok, all of the cards that I have been doing lately are for swaps, so I can't really show them yet.  I did take this adorable picture of my boxer, Murphy.  I decided that everyone needed to see this pic since he looks so peaceful. Most everyone that knows him never sees him like this - LOL!

Iris Folding - Triangle

Here was my first attempt at an iris folding card.  This was easier than the cat, and I think it turned out pretty good.  I actually like doing these.  It is pretty fun!

Iris Folding Cat

I have been practicing iris folding today.  This is actually pretty fun.  Hope you like it.  I really want to work up to doing some of the more difficult ones, but have started with the easy ones first.

Thanks for all the comments you all leave on my cards.  I may not always thank you personally, but know that I read and appreciate each and every one of them.  I am so glad that you come by and visit me every once in a while!
I had to do an all white card for a swap.  I thought this would be really hard, however, it was really fun.  I think it turned out well.  What do you all think about doing cards that are in one color?

Interlocking Hearts

I made this interlocking hearts card today.  I really love doing this and it is so easy.  This is a Michael Strong stamp that I stamped with gold embossing powder.  The hearts are glued on the left side so that the right side is open to slip the heart under all the way around.  The inside looks like this:
Of course I used my new ladybug punch!
